Abstract [en]

Various natural and man-made disasters force the affected population to flee from their homes to other safe places. Providing these affected people with quick and cost-efficient shelters is always a challenge. Recently, issues regarding the supply of energy to refugee camps have been a main concern given the crises of displaced populations and the problem of how to supply energy to the camps. This study has the purpose of discussing the design of an eco-cycle refugee emergency shelter with the aim to reach a six ‘Z’ target (i.e. ‘6Zs’), meaning zero emissions, zero energy, zero waste, zero cost, zero indoor air pollutants and zero impact on the environment after the shelter demolition. The key idea of this eco-cycle shelter is to reach a net 6Zs during all stages: material extraction, building construction, operation and maintenance until the shelter’s end of life, which depends on plant-based raw materials are brought in from the surrounding area to the building site. The study will discuss the design concepts involved and draw conclusions on the feasibility of achieving the 6Zs target through the modelling and simulation of the shelter’s energy consumption, thermal performance and net carbon emissions. The beneficiaries of this project include not only refugees but also the majority of the world’s urban poor. The shelter is designed for the cold Swedish climate, but the method can be adjusted to other climates or geographical contexts.
